Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of Kyle David Koslop who was born twin brother to Kristopher and brother to Jonathan & Sophia in Pennsylvania on June 16, 1993.  He died by suicide on February 10, 2007 at the age of 13. 

Kyle was an eight-grade student at Heights-Terrace Elementary/Middle School.  He was a member of the National Junior Honor Society, Vice-President of Student Council, a board member of the Community Service Club, a member of the Track & Field team, a Cougar football player and played ice & street hockey.
 
He was both beautiful on the outside and, more importantly, on the inside making him too pure for this earth. He displayed compassion, maturity, and insight far beyond his years.  Kyle had a great appreciation for life and saw the beauty when most were blind.  He was a big brother to Sophia and immediately assumed the role of mentor and protector.  Kyle was willing to sacrifice for the benefit of others to a degree that few adults have achieved, and far beyond the scope of most children. 

His greatest attributes were his kind heart and his generosity to others.    He had a passion for reading and kept a journal of all of the books that he read.  His favorite pastimes were fishing with his father, riding his motorcycle and computer games...Command & Conquer, Diablo and D&D.   Though he was bright, athletic, funny, and popular, Kyle chose as his best friends his two brothers Kristopher & Jonathan.  
His plans for the future were to attend the University of Miami with his brother to study medicine to cure disease.

Kyle was a tremendous person who was loved by many. He lives in the memory of his friends and family, mainly Kristopher & Jonathan to whom this site is dedicated to for their strength, courage, and bravery and for the love they give to me.  Kyle's soul is golden and true. I knew him. I learned from him, and I loved him for almost 14 years, and for that I will be ever thankful.

His suicide tells us that tragedy can strike anyone, even those with the most to live for.  We will always remember his smile and his way of making everyone around him feel special. He will live on in our hearts and minds forever and can't wait until the day we can all once again be happy, together...forever...
